  2. WINE WALL Once again this year we will be featuring the always popular Wine Wall on the night of the fundraiser. In order to make this fan favourite and evening highlight a success, we would like to ask each family to kindly donate 1 (or 2) bottles of white or red wine. As a point of reference the average donation is roughly $18/bottle. We will set up empty boxes at the front office for your donations. Thanks everyone!
  3. OPEN HOUSE Our next open house for Casa is scheduled for Wed, Feb 1st from 4:00-7:00pm. Spread the word to friends and family! It’s a great opportunity for new families to come meet the teachers and see inside the classrooms! Brooke will be in the Lower Elementary class too so if you’re considering the Elementary Program, this is a good opportunity to get some one-on-one time with an Elementary Teacher.
  4. THE CARD PROJECT Ordering is now closed for The Card Project. Thank you to everyone who placed an order… we raised $295.00!!!
